This colorful container garden includes a few cyclamens, winter-flowering violas and a range of evergreens. In colder climates, evergreen boughs and branches with berries can be combined for winter color.


Stand the basket on a wide pot to keep it stable during preparation. Then add a specially made basket liner.

Lay a circle of plastic bag over the bottom of the liner to act as a reservoir. Cut out a few evenly spaced crosses around the sides of the liner.

Add a layer of potting soil to the bottom. Wrap paper around the root ball of each ivy and push them through the holes in the sides.

Add the plants and fill in around them with more soil. Firm them in. Place a small plastic pot near the center to act as a watering reservoir. Water into this pot to make sure it reaches the plants' roots.
